EDITORS’ NOTES

Jagged Little Pill made Alanis Morissette everyone's favorite angry alt-rocker, but 1999's Unplugged shines a soft light on her tender side. With her classic singles given a stripped-down form, the deceptively sweet tone of Morissette's underrated vocals moves to the forefront. A gentle and melancholic take on "You Learn" sets the reflective tone. But the most dramatic reworking comes courtesy of "You Oughta Know," with the original's ruthless guitar attack replaced by a cinematic, emotion-stirring string section.
